Rohto V Ice eye drops (any drugstore) will help to clear your eyes out.
It burns my eyes when it goes in. I usually rub it around the whole eye
socket and eye brows. Very helpful and safe. I often slipped a little
in my ears when they were bad. For my nose I use a neti pot with sea
salt in it once or twice a day. I put a drop of Lugols (iodine) in it
every other day. A qtip with H202 on it helps the interior too. Vicks
nasal spray also helps. I use vaseline around my eyes, ears and nose at
bedtime to help keep them out, some used vicks. Like M said, try to get
your scalp under control, it will help you get you face under control.
I have been using lemon or lime concentrate 50% to water on my scalp
before I shower. I leave it on about 10 minutes and it does burn a
little. Has been helping alot. Hope my hair doesn't fall out...lol

I've used tea tree oil full strength from Walmart. close eye slightly&apply directly to eye eyelash with fingertip. will sting for 15 minutes or so& will have to do for weeks, but worked for me& I was losing my sight from them.

I had on burrowing into my eye and many in my eyebrow , i wet the eye , closed it and wiped betadine on it for 5 mins let it sit rinsed and all eye problems were gone. Betadine contains providone which I read causes the iodine to spread out more increasing its effectiveness, It is painless and one application solved the problem , unless i went and layed down on an infested bed and pillow , then I would pick up more and have to retreat, Betadine works on the privates too , 5 min application , rinse and they were gone permanently , says on the bottle not to use on large areas of the body

God bless you,,

In bath tub put tea tree oil then dunk head and open eyes. Do every precaution not to get mites in hair. Put treatment on scalp and swimmers cap on top. Vaseline near hairline. You do not want these beasts in your hair.

I have a question! You said one was burrowing into your eye, was it blood shot red at that time?

I have mite eggs coming out the sides of my eyes. Is it possible for mites to penetrate the eyeball and lay eggs inside causing blindness?

I'm going to try what Bill from New York used. His post is just above yours. He said he used Betadine and he said it work. I've never heard of anyone going blind. I'm not saying it couldn't happen. I think if you feel it is affecting your vision, I would ask an opthomologist for some anti-biotic eye drops. I've seen pictures of people from third world country losing their teeth from these parasites. They eat tissue. My gums started hurting, and I noticed the opaque yellow crusting on my lower bottom teeth. I almost had a heart attack. I had to get a metal pick to get it all off. And I had just had my teeth cleaned! It was hard to get off. That's why I am saying, if you have them in your mouth, eye, nose etc. you have Atypical scabies otherwise known as Norwegien scabies. This mite is hard to kill. Its nothing to mess with. You need to find an infectious disease doctor asap. If you don't have money, go to a clinic , make them treat you. If they don't treat you ask them where you can go to get treated. This is an infectious disease. Hang in there, I am suffering too. I am waiting for my insurance to track down a doctor that understands this disease. Apparently they are few and far between.

What does mites in your nose feel like to everyone that's had it? And did you have them on your body below your neck as well?

It's the same itching and tickling sensations as anywhere else. And yes, they're all over.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Right after I cleared my face of the little monsters they fell in my eyes two months ago. And then a new set of problems. Someone posted a blog regarding ivermectin. My doctor had given me a few tabs for my face and it didn't work. Anyway I thought I'd try it for my eyes. You can buy it at any farm store. It measures 1cc per 100 lbs. I did one dose yesterday. I could tell a difference within hours. I had tried everything I read about already. Usually it's a daily ritual of boric acid, etc. Today is a miracle. No runny eyes and the other issues that accompany this problem. I was out in the cold too and no problem. It's as if they dried up. I'm so happy I wanted to share it. I pray it stays this way and feel it will. Good luck.

Any ideas on a safe, effective way to get these things out of the eyes? I think they migrated from my scalp to my eyes. It wasn't too hard getting them out of my eyebrows with iodine, but the eyes are problematic. I can actually feel them biting my eyeballs and crawling out of the corners.
I did so much research (not on this site. I came here after treatment started) on scabies and how it was treated before the latest prescription drugs were available. I learned a lot from all that. One of the things that I studied was their life cycle and the forms they took over that life cycle. I'm not talking those drawings taken in 3-dimensions, I'm talking just plain old 2-dimensional scabies and their life cycle (see google images). There were other things that I learned about their body and I would glance at a diagram of an adult from time to time such that the image was in my brain.

In addition, I unfortunately have eye conditions unrelated to diabetes that could cause blindness by tearing my retina. I did tear it last year and had 2 surgeries to repair it. I have so many things floating around that eye.

Back to mites in the eyes: One day, I was looking up only slightly up waiting for something to finish up on the computer. I swear to you, I saw a 2 dimensional view of an adult scabi mite float by. It actually was floating up and it wasn't floating in any direction that the floaters were going in. This was some place else. Things that rest either on or in our eyeball are enlarged like a microscope (I asked my retina doctor this. it's true). When I saw that adult mite float by, I knew it was there. I jumped up and flushed it like crazy. The "floating" part to me meant it was in the fluid on the outside of that eye.

Same day, I'm sitting at the computer checking all angles of both eyes now. I spot an adult mite in my left eye. I have floaters and debris from when I tore my retina floating in that eye, but this mite isn't floating. It's another scabie mite, too. No movement? I tried to flush it out, it wouldn't go. I could see through it. It only provided a partial obstruction in the cornor of that eye. I was freaked out that it was going to chomp away on that eye.

The next day, I awoke thinking that the mite had to have moved because they are always on the move. I spotted it and it was in the same position. Then I began to think. First it's not floating like it's cousin that I flushed out of the right eye. It's not floating like the floaters and debris inside my left eye. It is absolutely still. I clearly see it's legs and they are up against it's body. That was a month ago. It is still there. It's as dead as a door nail.

What's going on is the eyeball doesn't have any skin. The mite died because of that. When? I don't know. It died more than likely from starvation. It got itself stuck where it is at. I was hoping my immune system would clean it up by now, but it is still there. I see my retina doctor regularly and when I hear what he thinks, I will let folks know here. The reason why I thought my immune system would get it is because when the retina tore, blood dissolved into the fluid in my eye which made everything a light yellowish-brown. The doctor told me not to worry about it because my immune system would clean it up. It did just that (took about a month).

So don't freak out. Luckily for us, there's no skin on or in the eye.

My appointment with my retina doctor is scheduled for the second week of October. I have reported the parasite and added it was dead. I hope if it is not gone by then that he will remove it.

Thank you Charlie. If it is gone, I will still try to remember to ask him if parasites like scabies can get into the eyes and if so how does one get rid of them.

I had one burrowing into my eye and
many in my eyebrow , i wet the eye
, closed it and wiped betadine on it
for 5 mins let it sit rinsed and all
eye problems were gone. it was painless
The eyelids keep it out of the eyelids, if it get in to them it feels like soap and ai rinse it out , I havent had eye probles on a long time
Betadine
contains providone which I read
causes the iodine to spread out
more increasing its effectiveness,
It is painless and one application
solved the problem , unless i went
and layed down on an infested bed
and pillow , then I would pick up
more and have to retreat, Betadine
works on the privates too , 5 min
application , rinse and they were
gone permanently , says on the

Not sure if your mites were removed permanently, as you have had this for 11 years now.
But, thanks for the tip.

she uses 10 -30 difrent names to post always a derogatory statement always starts a fight , she has closed forums with her cruel comments .

betadine works well on the eye , it elimated them on the eyes for me for me , I sometimes go places the bug is in and pick up a few , then I know what to do to eliminate them again

God is Love ,
